Bangladesh: Credible Election

Ex diplomat Sirajul Islam comments in his blog on the impending general election in Bangladesh: “If at the end of it, a major political party feels that there is no level playing ground for its participation in the polls, then for all practical purposes, the efforts of this Government has not been successful.”

    Ambassador Islam’s analysis on this topic is completely on target. I think the caretaker government underestimated the problems that plague the political system of our country and only took a symptomatic approach to resolving the issues. The current demise of the political make up of Bangladesh run much deeper and until those problems are examined carefully, the vicious cycle will continue.
